Petitioning Prime Minister Tony Abbott and 1 other

We want all members of Parliament to cease involvement with the World Congress of Families.

Federal Social Services Minster Kevin Andrews and Victorian State Attorney-General Robert Clark will participate in the World Congress of Families event that is being held in Melbourne in late August. Robert Clark will be giving a speech welcoming the World Congress of Families and Kevin Andrews who is an International Ambassador for the World Congress of Families will officiate the opening and closing of the event.

The World Congress of Families, which lists Federal Senate Leader Eric Abetz and Federal MP Cory Bernardi as supporters, is being organised by a group that campaigns for the criminalisation of homosexuality and for Christian based conversion therapy.

We take the view that no member of parliament should be involved in an event and/or give it's support to an organisation that advocates that homosexuality should be a crime and that believes homosexuals can and should be converted to heterosexual.

Please sign and share this petition. Homophobia has no place in Australia and no member of parliament should be involved in it's promotion.
